Where are the Euganean Hills?
Where they stand and how to reach the Euganean Hills
The Euganean Hills are a group of volcanic hills standing inside the Veneto, region located in the North-East of Italy.
Just a few kilometers south of Padua the whole area represents the first Regional Park of the Veneto.
The Veneto region ranks first for the number of European tourists who choose to spend their holidays in Italy: its share corresponds to one fifth of the total (source: National Observatory of Tourism, year 2012).
This great success is owed to the fact that, along with its wonders, the Veneto offer accommodation suitable for every kind of need. Visitors can enjoy cities of art like Venice, the mountain resort in the Dolomites, the seaside towns such as the lively eventful Jesolo and the stunning Lake Garda.
Since the Euganean Hills enjoy a central location in the area, they stand in a strategic position from which the most significant tourist destinations can be reached in just 1 or 2 hours.
